A Childs Place Casa Ltd
April 8, 2012

I am a former board member and got to know the work of this great organization at that time. Now, as a director of an After School and preschool program in a low income neighborhood, I have come to appreciate all that these volunteers do for our children. Many times, the CASA Volunteer is the most dependable person in the lives of the children they serve. They truly do give the child a voice in their own situations, as a judge is determining their future. I encourage others to give to this organization, in order to keep their operations solid. They work very hard, in very difficult situations.

They truly are the voice of the child in the court system and the only 'constant' for many children. Their involvement with the children they represent is more than any other agency or caseworker can provide. They make recommendations to the judges based on what they learn from building relationships with the children. Those relationships hold no matter how many times they are in and out of the home, how many foster families they live with throughout the state or institutions they are placed in. The role of a CASA Volunteer is critical for our children in the court system.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a former board member, I am very aware of the wonderful work of this group of volunteers. I heard first hand how the involvement of a volunteer changed the life of a child - many times. I know that the organization operates without any major support, no matter how many children are in their system. They give freely of their time and their hearts to truly be the voice of children in need.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't believe I would change anything about the organization, but if it were possible to make it mandatory for every child in our court systems to be appointed a CASA volunteer, our children would be much better off.
